This year David Attenborough “Blue Planet 2” and “Planet Earth 2” have highlighted the importance of the effect our existence have on our planet. From plastic in our oceans, global warming, palm oil production and deforestation… The list goes on! I believe 2019 many more people will make more eco-friendly choices when it comes to their homes.
Reclaimed wooden furniture is a great way to recycle without having to hunt around second-hand shops or spend hours up-cycling.
Boho is Back
Scandi came in and boho was put on the back burner, however it’s making its comeback. Think fringing, pouffes, native motifs, bean bags, rattan furniture and embrace the tribal laid back boho vibe.
Exposed beams, graphic patterns, colourful prints, wallpaper cover, the possibilities are endless when making your ceiling a focal point of your room.
Concrete has been very popular in industrial styled commercial spaces and hipster restaurants and cafe’s. Now it’s started to enter our homes. Its subdued, unobtrusive nature is great for grounding a bold space that’s rich in colour and patterns. It also adds quiet stability and texture to the space.
The beauty of concrete is it can be integrated in small or large doses, like this faux succulents which is only £13.
In Germany last year ceramic was everywhere and this year it has begun to gain momentum here in the UK. Not only is this material nearly indestructible, the design options and prints are endless. We have 3 suppliers of ceramic table tops, two italian suppliers Domitalia and Bontempi, whose design and quality are top of the range. We also have the Panama range which caters to those on a tighter budget.
According to LivingEtc “Designers have been searching the skies for inspiration – with heavenly results. Think sophisticated astronomy and zodiac patterns, star-strewn plates, galaxy murals, galactic surfaces and cosmic tile work. From subtle hints to all-out tributes to the night sky, celestial motifs will be shooting across fashion and interiors.”
We love the gorgeous Stellar Planet Lamps from Parlane!
